Yes you can use a disk which is used for reformatting the system just like you can reinstall the windows in your system.
It will automatically reinstall the all booting files in your system and also remove your old operating problems.

But after installing the windows in the system you you have also need to install all the Motherboard Drivers in the system. If you have a Motherboard Drivers C.D. with you...fine...But if not have a Motherboard C.D. don't afraid at all.....you can find all the available Motherboard Drivers from the Website of HP.

Trying to restore OS gt5056


I can't find the drivers in a place I would trust, and I can't verify this model has a Factory Restore Partition. This appears to be an XP machine, which is no longer supported. If it is, I recommend backing up your personal data asap, and plan on moving to a newer machine and Operating System. If the machine won't boot, and you have important files on it, you could purchase a USB Hard Drive Adaptor, pull out the hard drive, and copy any important files to another machine. Good luck.

How to restore factory settings on a dell inspiron 230 using disk


Hi,
if you want to reinstall OS:
Insert the disk, it should automatically open the install.exe thing and you'll need to follow the instructions.

if you want to restore the computer to factory settings and reinstall OS:
turn off your PC
keep pressing the key for boot menu it's F8 or F12 or F11 depending on the PC's manufacturer.
Then there will be either a boot menu or a "Do you want to do a system restore":
a) system restore, keep pressing the key and it will load. Then follow the instructions
b) if it's boot menu, insert the disk, and then select the option which says to load from the CD/DVD. Then follow the instructions.

NOTE - PLEASE BE CAREFUL, IF MAKE ANY MISTAKE, COMPUTER MAY NOT RECOVER.

Mi notebook acer aspire 3000LCi the only do is a an upper and i dont have a recovery disk


When you restore your system back to the new factory settings, it will wipe your hard drive clean and do a fresh install of the operating system with the original factory setting.


To start this process, unplug all extra devices from your computer

(printers, external hard drives, etc.) as these can interfere with the system restore.


Starting with Windows XP, most systems with issued a system recovery disk in case of any problems with the factory installation.


Check the documentation and disks that came with your computer to determine if you have one of these system disks.


If you do have a copy of this disk, place it in your CD/DVD drive and restart your computer.

If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions.


Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words.

Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings.


Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation.

Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again.


Restart your computer to complete the restore.


3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk.


Unplug all external devices and restart your computer.

When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times.


This will bring up the system restore menu.

Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings


hope this helps

I've just done a systems factory restore but ercovery stalls at process stage 11/12. I killed it by doing ctrl/alt/delete and ending the task in task manager. My computer works fine but it does this...


Please follow this step:
Format your system and reinstall the original operating system software that came with it. While you can install the latest version of OS X that you purchased from the App Store, technically this is a copy licensed to you, not the new owners. Reinstalling the original version of OS X will allow the new owners to choose what version they would like to install.

To reinstall the original version of OS X if your Mac came with a gray installation and restoration DVD, insert this into the optical drive and reboot with the C key held down. Then after selecting your language choose Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. In Disk Utility, select your internal hard drive (listed above any volume names contained on it), and you should see a "Partition" tab appear. In this tab, choose "1 Partition" from the drop-down menu, and then give the partition a name, set it to be "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)," and apply the changes.

If your system did not come with a gray restoration DVD, then you will need to use Internet Recovery to restore the original version of OS X. This will access Apple's servers and download the installation tools for the correct version that came with your system. To do this, ensure you have an appropriate internet connection for use with Internet Recovery, and then reboot with the Option-Command-R keys held to force loading to Internet Recovery. Again, use Disk Utility to fully partition the internal boot drive, and then quit Disk Utility.

Once the hard drive has been formatted, you can proceed with running the OS X installer, and wait for the content to download and be set up on the system.

After the installer completes, the system will restart and show the welcome screen of the OS X setup assistant, at which point you can hold the power button to shut off the system (when it is next turned on it will start at the assistant). It is now ready for the new owners to turn on and set up, as if the Mac arrived straight from the factory.

Compaq cpq 5410us ran a factory restore from disk that came with computor when done it says remove disk and turn off computor tun back on and get nothing any ideas ?


What you will need to do is reboot the computer with the cd out of the drive. When the computer starts up you will need to hit f5 or f7 to get into the system bios. You will see a list of boo table devices choose cd-rom. put the cd in, power down computer. Turn it on and it should boot from cd and allow you to do the factory restore.

I need to either erase everything but my OS from my hp mini 110 or i need to know how to make a recovery disk for my hp mini so that i can reinstall XP SP3 when i reformat. Can you help me?


If your installation of windows is corrupt or damaged, you may no longer be able to make a recovery disk.
If you can boot the computer, look in system tools for the make a recovery disk option.
You could try fixing this installation, try this guide.

I need to do a system restore on my toshiba but i lost the disk. Can i use another toshibas computers disk?


No, each recovery disc contains an image of the OS and not an individual installer for the OS. Best option is to contact their Tech Support and ask for a Recovery Disc or have them walk you through Restoring to Factory state. Please take note this would lead to your Hard Drive being wiped clean then the OS reinstalled, so you will lose all your files. However if you can still boot to Windows perform the built-in System Restore for Windows. You can do this by clicking on Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore and it will allow you to pick a date on how far back you want to Restore. And the good part for this method is you will not lose your files.

If you have your computer Recovery disk, place the disk in the drive and restart the computer. It sounds like your OS is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.
